North Park Microblading: Tips for Patients with Sensitive Skin
If you have sensitive skin, don’t rule out microblading before talking to your artist. There are certain skin conditions that can cause your facial skin to be more sensitive than others, but as long as your artist is fully aware of your sensitivities and condition prior to the procedure, he or she will be able to properly prep you to ensure you achieve the beautiful results you’ve been dreaming about!

Talk to Your Microblading Artist (and Doctor) Before the Procedure
If you have specific allergies or if your skin is prone to being extra sensitive, it may be a good idea to find out exactly what products will be used before, during and after the procedure so you can run them by your doctor first.
It is also important to discuss all skin conditions and sensitivities with your artist, so he or she can prepare you for the best possible experience, For example, extra ointment or a cooling compress may be used at the time of the procedure to help reduce extra inflammation.
Prep the Area Yourself
If you are aware of your skin sensitivities, it’s a good idea to prep the area yourself prior to the procedure. Bacteria and dirt, for example, may cause irritation or infection in the area if it is not cleaned properly. An experienced and reputable artist will know how to properly prep and clean your brow area before, but it never hurts to take an extra precaution and do it yourself also.
You can clean the skin with a gentle cleanser and even exfoliate the area lightly to remove dead skin and any extra dirt or bacteria. Make sure not to over exfoliate, however, as you want to keep some of the natural oils.
After you clean the area, it is crucial to moisturize! This adds a protective layer/barrier to the skin. Dry skin is more likely to flake and become irritable during and after microblading.
Stay Out of the Sun Before the Procedure
If your skin is already sensitive, you want to make sure you don’t add extra factors such as a sunburn. A sunburn can not only make the area extra sensitive, but it can also cause the skin to peel which will prevent the color from setting evenly and lasting.
Follow Post Care Instructions!
Following the post care instructions is vital to ensuring the tattoo heals properly. For example, you’ll want to keep the area clean and use the ointment provided by your artist. Ointments such as Aquaphor add a thick protective layer to the area and can help prevent irritation.
